BROHDEAD — The Cardinals had the state’s top team on the ropes June 8. Had Brodhead been victorious against unbeaten D2 No. 1 Jefferson, the Cardinals would have clinched a share of the Rock Valley title. Instead, the visiting Eagles scored twice in the top of the eighth inning to win 4-2, ending Brodhead’s winning streak at 15 games.
